Roman Kryklia will be putting the ONE light heavyweight kickboxing championship on the line against Murat Aygun in the main event of ONE: NextGen happening on October 29 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
The Ukrainian fighter now has a professional kickboxing record of 45-7, and this will be his second time defending the title. His opponent will be Murat Aygun, a Dutch-Turkish kickboxer who has only lost once in 18 professional kickboxing bouts.
Kryklia made his debut in November 2019 and participated in the inaugural ONE kickboxing light heavyweight championship against Iraj Azizpour. He won that match via unanimous decision.
His next match was against Andrei Stoica in December 2020, and that fight was won by TKO in the second round.
Meanwhile, Aygun will be getting back inside the ring for the second time after a successful debut in the organization. He went up against Anderson Silva in December 2020 and won that match through a unanimous decision.
